Thirty elected representatives from Algeria, France, Italia, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, Palestine, Spain, Tunisia and Turkey reminded common values they were sharing  in particular those written in the Charter in favour of democratic governance. They advocated for a strong and open diplomacy carried by local and regional governments and with clear concrete goals in favour of populations.

Ils ont plaidé pour que les gouvernements locaux et régionaux portent une diplomatie ouverte, active et ayant des objectifs concrets clairs qui servent les populations. Emergencies are numerous and expectations are great.
